Kaiser Permanente to offer eye screenings for free cataract surgeries
Kaiser Permanente physicians and staff in Sacramento will offer screenings for area residents who may be eligible for free cataract surgeries that will be performed this spring. The screenings, by appointment only, will be on Saturday, April 12, at the Kaiser Permanente Point West Medical Offices, 1650 Response Road, Sacramento.
The surgeries are part of Mission Cataract USA, an annual program in which participating doctors provide the sight-restoring procedure to hundreds of people across the nation who have no health insurance and can’t afford the operation. This is Kaiser Permanente’s 19th year in the program. Kaiser Permanente physicians and staff will perform as many as 20 free cataract surgeries on eligible individuals in early May.
Screening appointments can be made through April 3 or until the slots fill up, whichever comes first. To sign up for the screening, or to request more information, call (916) 973-7159.
Stroll to Thrive is underway
Dozens of parents, along with their infants and toddlers, participated in the Stroll to Thrive kick-off event at the Galleria at Roseville on Friday, February 14.

This is the newest addition to Kaiser Permanente's already successful Walk to Thrive programs. Stroll to Thrive members will meet each Friday at 9 a.m. for a one-mile stroller walk through the mall. Members receive a free T-shirt, pedometer, and emails about guest physicians and upcoming activities. For more information or to join, visit kpwalktothrive.org.
